2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml dark bottle from Morrisons. A soft, clean and drinkable beer. Mildly fragrant and perfumed, but this is a British Golden Ale not an APA. Quite forgettable really, but inoffensive and drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fairly light orange body with a small head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has rapeseed and mango along with some pine and citrus notes. Taste is is pretty sweet with a bitter finish that lingers on the palate. Carbonation is on the soft side and the mouthfeel is slick and oily. Decent IPA but could use more hop and less malt character.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Morrisons. All the american IPA’s I’ve sampled have big citrus, raisin & pine aromas. Theses hop flavours follow through on the taste. Barry IPA has none of these quilitys. The malt base is far to dominant, unfortunately this is not a sweet biscuity malt but a sharp metallic lingering flavour. A very disappointing brew.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
caramel, resin, dough, overly malted, didn’t let any of the hop punch through. Really disappointing. Nice label though.

Bottle in South Shields. Pours Golden with a White head. Lots of malty sweetness with only a hint of any hop character. Light citrus perhaps. Pretty shoddy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at The Grapes, Oxford, Thursday 29th May 2014 in company of Helen & Geraint however I have this before but clearly not rated from Tesco Extra. A mix of citrus on the nose, orange, lemon and maybe some grapefruit all underpinned with a little biscuity maltiness, a little dry in the finish. Appearance is gold, a little murky and a white head atop. Just about the best tonight. I recall going to Butlins Barry Island when I was a young whippersnapper, great memories. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
